The University is a leading Polish medical centre with over 80 years of academic experience and with great potential for development. The University is well equipped for research in basic medical sciences, clinical investigations, diagnosis and treatment. Teaching and research are mainly based on co-operation with 5 Clinical Hospitals as well as on the other city hospitals. The investigations conducted at the University are presented in several hundred research papers published yearly in professional journals. Every year faculty members participate in no fewer that 400 international congresses and conferences. In 1991 the University decided to introduce programs in English, starting in 1993 with the 4-Year M.D. Program based entirely on the American curriculum and the requirements of the U.S.M.L.E. system. A 6-Year Program in English based on the Polish/European model followed this, a year later. In year 2000 we reached the last of our planned English-language based projects, with the introduction of 5-Year Program in Dentistry. This will lead to a qualification, which will meet the requirements for those intending to practice in Europe.
